Our acreage sits on a high point so we can view sunrises and sunset with unobstructed views. Once someone was in my store from New York City. They told me that in New York city just to have an apartment with a view of either the sunrise or sunset as one million dollars to the value of the apartment. So I say our acreage has a 2 MILLION Dollar View!!!

I don't consider my self a gardener, even though I love flowers!!! When we first moved to our acreage I was working at the lab and didn't have children yet. I was really into stopping by the garden centers on my way home from work and bring home wonderful new perennials to plant. Over the years since I started the Rug Cottage my flower beds have been sooo neglected. The flowers and bushes that have survived my neglect were not the fancy ones from the garden centers, but the ones that I transferred from our farm in western Iowa.
